AppDynamics

As it pertains to monitoring database transactions, as our application relies heavily on SQL, AppDynamic's monitoring tool made an immediate impact on sorting which ones are slow. The business transactions that we can capture are limited in the sense that our application works where it can't be limited to 200, so we ended having to setup service endpoints to account for it.

Splunk Cloud

I find that Splunk Cloud is well suited for tracking user logins, Server Reboots, failed login attempts, account lockouts, and sorting these items by host or user. We often trace failed user logins to someone having cached credentials on an endpoint which can result in locked accounts that drive the Help Desk ticket volume up unnecessarily.

Pros

AppDynamics

  • Giving a network map of our application that shows where slowdowns are occurring and where network traffic is running into a bottleneck.
  • We are able to gather node-specific information that shows the number of sessions a web server or even Redis session statistics.
  • We use AppDynamics to give a holistic view of our application allowing us to quickly narrow in on problems.

Splunk Cloud

  • With Splunk Cloud you get the advantage of moving from POC to Production in a matter of days rather than in months allowing the Business to gain a lot.
  • Takes you away from managing infrastructure/administration, allows saving time & money. Reduce the overall TCO (Total Cost of Ownership)
  • Move from Reactive to Proactive Monitoring
  • Highly secure environment at your finger-tips

Cons

AppDynamics

  • Price of the AppDynamics is high. But it has many valuable features. This makes it difficult for small businesses to enter.
  • Functionality is overkill for most small to midsize businesses (SMBs). When stacking up product units, it can get pricey for enterprises as well.
  • With fine granular configs and customizations available, it will also mean that it is very complicated and requires a certain amount of knowledge before we can make full use of all features in the product. Much careful thought and planning is required to get the most of it. Set-up will be longer. One recommendation is for features to be better documented.

Splunk Cloud

  • The query language is well-documented but has a bit of a learning curve.
  • I wish copy/pasting JSON from the logs were easier without going to the completely raw (condensed) form.

Overall, it is very usable. I would like if recent searches were saved for longer because I always have to refer to my notes when I'm looking for something specific and it's been a few weeks. But that's a small issue, and the actual search and browsing interface is easy to use and powerful.

AppDynamics has its own community site that includes forums and a knowledge base. On the forums, you can converse with other members of the community and ask technical questions as you have them. Though this forum isn’t filled with people there are active members for you to gain some valuable insights.

There is plenty of community-driven support, which is always a very good thing to have. Getting support from your peers worldwide means answers can be very quick, even quicker than official support channels.

Alternatives Considered

AppDynamics

New Relic is only SaaS and keys off of AppDex scoring (i.e. industry baselines) and not on my application's baselines. Where most of our stuff is custom apps, going off of industry wasn't valuable to us. It was also cost prohibitive

Splunk Cloud

All the products in this category do log aggregation very well, however the winning factor was that we have experience with Splunk already and this has proved invaluable as Splunk has a steep learning curve. Especially the Splunk administration part of the tool as that is a very complex area if you wish to get into it.

Return on Investment

AppDynamics

  • AppDynamics isn't cheap, but it definitely helps to ensure our applications and APIs are up and running without issue. The alerting is usually good but occasionally mixed, for example sometimes flagging a single error as a critical issue since the API is usually completely error free.
  • The cost saving in terms of trouble shooting and analyzing issues in production is fantastic - to know about issues before they are reported by customers enables you to be proactive in resolving them and ensuring maximum up time for our applications.

Splunk Cloud

  • Reduced the amount of time needed from internal security resources (freed up at least 3 FTEs).
  • Reduced the cost per daily GB ingests of our SIEM by 33%.
  • Allowed us to migrate to a lower cost SOC model.
